Movie S1
Examples of hippocampal ripples elicited during free recall in three patients. In the video you can hear the verbal report of the patients during spontaneous recall events, and see the simultaneous changes in ripple band amplitude (70-180 Hz) along with the detected SWR events (marked by yellow triangles and accompanied by a brief sound). These examples demonstrate the rich visual content emerging during recall, and the transient increase in ripple rate that precedes the verbal reports of the freely recalled images (accompanying fig. 2).
